While Hastings Borough Council are looking for ideas to revitalise our town centre it would appear that East Sussex County Council are determined to kill it with on street parking charge increase. Having decided we needed to go shopping we went to park in Robertson Terrace only to find that a ticket to park would cost £5.90 for 2 hours, I understand charges are higher in other parts of the town. We paid £1 for 20 mins and got out of town as soon as the urgent bit of the shopping was completed.

At present there are no charges for on street parking in Bexhill and even when charging is introduced 2 hrs in Devonshire Road, the main shopping street, will cost 80p.

Guess where we will be shopping in future.
